It’s been two months since we’ve started Happie Bamboo and we’ve been overwhelmed by the support and response we’ve received. So far, 68 people have ordered at least one of our natural bamboo products and the feedback has been very positive. Thank you!
Australia currently has an estimated population of 25.2 Mil people, so we still have a long way to go in convincing people to give up the plastic consumables they’ve always purchased and try a more sustainable alternative.
At Happie Bamboo we understand breaking a habit is not always easy. I can tell you that at our home everyone has switched to bamboo toothbrushes and we all love them. Yes, it was a little bit different initially, but our teeth are still clean, and our breath is fresh. Equally important, our kids have started asking questions about why they switched from a plastic to a bamboo toothbrush, and the conversations around sustainability and thinking about the environment when buying something has really made an impact on them. It has changed their view on what they want to buy in the supermarket which we think is great.
Now I hear you thinking, of course you say all your products are great. You are blowing your own trumpet as it’s your business and you want to sell heaps of products and make a lot of money. So, we should all switch to bamboo toothbrushes, drink bottles and kids suction bowls because it will be good for you and the environment but also good for your business.
Let me tell you, starting up Happie Bamboo has been tough and financially it is very challenging to even break even. But we believe in our cause, we believe in our products and we are convinced that slowly but surely more and more people will experience our products, spread the word and convince others to give it a go.
To show you that we are serious about this, we will put our money where our mouth is and do something that (as far as we know) has never been done before in Australia. We will give away 2 bamboo toothbrushes to 200 different people, 100% FREE. Our goal is to convince those 200 people that the bamboo alternative is ok and hopefully they will agree with us and spread the word.
You don’t have to pay anything, not even postage and there is no obligation to buy anything from us in the future or to give us a positive testimonials or feedback. Of course, we would love you to leave us positive feedback and buy from us again, but we will leave this 100% up to you to decide.
So, what’s the catch? Nothing, absolutely nothing! Just click on the link below and register your interest. On the 30th of September we will randomly draw 200 winners who will receive their 2-pack of bamboo toothbrushes via Australia Post within one week.
Looks too good to be true? We agree… But at Happie Bamboo we are a little bit bold, brave and crazy!
